Gebrüder Weiss has announced the expansion of its import consulting program in the United States.
U.S. Customs applies a reasonable care standard to judge the compliance of import transactions. Failure to meet this standard could result in penalties and extensive costs to correct violations. Gebrüder Weiss USA, and its team of licensed professionals, encourages clients to partner with them to carefully examine the compliance of their U.S. import process with a particular focus on critical areas such as;
- Tariff classification
- Invoice description of the merchandise
- Country of origin marking
- Anti-dumping and countervailing duty
- Intellectual property rights
- Other government agency requirements
- Record keeping
Additional services include binding rulings, CTPAT certification, scope rulings and duty drawback.
"Do it once and do it right. At the onset, we provide clients with a solid foundation for compliant transactions with evidence of the exercise of reasonable care, as required by U.S. Customs, "said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss USA. "We pride ourselves on helping companies mitigate their exposure to compliance issues, while at the same time providing valuable education and tools to their organization. By expanding our import consulting services, we're demonstrating our commitment to our customers so that they have a true partner in the U.S. import process."
